Exactly 100% of Model A's that have not been restored have sagging frames. Panel alignment is out of the question till frames are straight and their is a big lag time to get into a frame shop so our latest score is welcome indeed. Also the Muscle Car era GM cars (Camaro, GTO, Cutlass, Buick GS, Nova) have a problem with the frames rolled in at the upper A-frame mount point. Some have over an inch of shims to compensate so being able to pull straight will be a big plus. A big body shop chain was going to all computerized machines so it was ours for hauling off---SCORE!!
